This is a PowerPoint presentation of 26 slides- 1 home screen and 25 summarizing question slides.
Each slide contains a generic summarizing question to ask at the end of the lesson or class. Research shows that by ending the lesson and asking students to summarize their learning, rather than just sending them out the door or passing out homework, increases retention. Think of it as a type of formative assessment. Have students write their answers and turn them into you. Quickly sort into two piles: gets it and doesn't get it. Use the size of the piles to determine how to start the next lesson.
This works like a game. Show the home screen and have students pick a category, like B2. Clicking B2 will take you to a new slide with a summarizing question on it. In the bottom right hand corner, click the exit icon to return to the home screen.
To make it even better, buy a Bingo game and remove all the chips except the ones listed. Then students can take turns rolling the wheel or whatever and randomly choosing a chip.
This is my third year of teaching. So far I have taught Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 1 Lab, Algebra II, Geometry Lab, and ACT Test Prep. I am also on my school's literacy team, the Student Council sponsor, and the department head.
